Men Behaving Badly

It's been a while since I've posted something with women being put down for not having basic housewife skills. I think this fills my quota for a while. These Folger commercials are unusual because they are Mrs. Olson free.

Mrs. Olsen was probably too busy being in "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" when these were, I doubt she would have been complicit in the rampant sexism these commercials represented.

I'd love to re-write the script for end of that last one:

DUMB COP HUSBAND: Say, Sarge never makes coffee THIS good!

WIFE: I'll bet there are LOTS of things Sarge won't do for you. (Both laugh) And neither will I, asshole! Enjoy frisking the next criminal, because that's the ONLY person you'll be feeling up from now on! And you can sleep at the precinct, flatfoot!

Hi, my comment is totally irellevant with your latest entry.
The previous week I was in a used LP shop and I discovered an lp of Lana Cantrell named LANA!. (Here in Greece!!!)Searching on the net for some information I found your blog that is full of such things.
I try to find other Lana's lps in shops and that's impossible. Do you know if there is any link in rapidshare or else where I can download her songs? the way I added your blog on the list of my favorite ones in my blog. Unfortunately, You cannot read mine cause it will be literally all greek to you.
Thanks in advance.

Finally, a coffee that will mask the taste of the poison which I'm sure these ladies were dropping into their husbands mugs.
